For some, May 1 is just another Monday or the perfect time to execute the NSYNC’s “It’s Going to Be Me” joke. But for the fashion world, it’s basically a holiday because it’s the 2023 Met Gala. And as always we are here judging all the looks from our comfy couches.
The 2022 Met Gala was all about celebrating American fashion and glamorous style. This year the theme is an ode to the late Karl Lagerfeld and his decades-long impact on fashion, and celebrities honored the designer in a variety of ways, including gorgeous bedazzled dresses, ball gowns, and full-body paint. Oh, and did we mention that Doja Cat came dressed up as a cat?
Last year, intricate headpieces were a critical part of many looks, and this year it’s the same. We spotted tons of stunning hair accessories on celebrities’ heads — some headbands and fascinators while others were so abstract, we don’t even know what to call them. Here are some of our favorite headbands, hats, and other intricate headpieces at the 2023 Met Gala.
